Draugr (Archer) Battle Strategy

Kill Them First

When dealing with Draugr Archers it is highly recommended that you deal with them first. You can do this by drawing their aggro and blocking their vision so they would run closer to you.

If you allow them to attack you while dealing with other Draugrs, you can be severly punished since they deal a lot of damage if you are not geared properly.

Parry their Arrows

Even though these enemies shoot arrows, you can still parry them and they will get stunned for a long time. The requirement to parry their attacks is pretty low since you only need a Bronze Buckler to be able to do this.
